Art is our thing

My family loves art.  My husband can draw anything.  He really is wasting his life being a surgical assistant.  LOL  He could be an artist instead of saving lives. 

Griffin and Bella definitely take after him and not me.  I’m good with crafts and really enjoy them but I can’t draw a straight line with a ruler.

I am writing this post as part of a meme my friend Jennifer over at Glimpse of our Life is doing.  Each week brings great art and a way to share our children’s crafts.

Bella entered some items in our fair last month and this gives me a great opportunity to share one of her winning items.   This was done using a collage effect out of everyday household items.  We used matches, beads, rice, cloths pins for antlers, construction paper, feathers and a brown paper bag.  We got this idea out of an Usborne Art Book.

Happy Homeschooling and have fun with art.
